    Hi all,

    Last week I upgraded to a dual core G5 Powermac. I'm working on converting old minidvd movies and working with them in iMovie. I'm also playing with a high def camcorder.

    Long story short - I'm going through HD space like popcorn. I want to add a 2nd internal drive. I need some specific advice on which HD I should buy. Is there a max size drive the G5 can handle? Does it matter which SATA version drive I use (SATA-100, SATA-133, SATA-150)?

    Thanks for any advice you can give.

    You can put up to two 500GB SATA HDD's in.

    I'd recommend Seagate - quiet, awesome warranty.

    Agree, I have a 300GB external one and a 250GB WD internal 80GB WD in a PC all very good ;)
